Day in the Life of a Property Operations Associate, Maintenance 

Like many operations roles, there is no ‘typical day'. Your role will involve a wide range of activities tending to The Metropolitan (Kasa Sunset Los Angeles).

This includes performing preventive maintenance tasks, as well as responding to and repairing maintenance requests from guests and staff. Essential Duties and Responsibilities are as follows:

  • Perform preventive maintenance and repairs, covering a range of tasks such as cleaning equipment, changing filters, lubricating moving parts, minor carpentry, special projects, and other related areas
